need some help with memory timing

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have Corsair CMX512-3200c2 X2, with a stock timing of 3-8-3-3. Right now I have the ram set at 3-10-3 -3, with a 7:7 ratio at 2.75v. My cpu fsb 225, voltage is at 1.53 and multi X11.

Now heres my question, why is it that when I up my fsb to 230, with the same ram timing and voltage and still having a 7:7 ratio; when I play a game like Quake 4 it freezes for 20sec. then continues to play or sometimes it just freeze?

The Ram sounds like it's becoming unstable at that speed. You could maybe try upping the voltage a touch, loosening the timings to 3-4-4 or you could just run a lower divider. I wouldn't worry too much about Ram speed/timings for games though, really just for serious benchmarking.
